The spinning backfist was a staple of American Rules Kickboxing, and came to prominence when Shonie Carter beat Matt Serra with it at UFC 31 in 2001.

Sometimes a good thing that travels too far goes bad, as Matt Lawrence learned the hard way vs. defending champion Dillon Cleckler at Island Fights 18 on 31 August 2012 in Pensacola, Florida.

Pretty sweet, but I don't think anything can possibly top Chael's Spinning BackFael.

Not only was that in one of the biggest fights ever, but the look of absolute horror as he deer-in-headlighted on the ground staring at Anderson nonchalantly walking his way was hilarious.

Didn't Shonie hit two of those in the Serra fight?

JimmersonzGlove -

I know he hit another one on him during the TUF Comebacks season that rocked Serra... but Serra still won the fight. Phone Post
